The OCTA staff should go look at the votes on this tax increase as it has gone through the legislature. In the State Senate, on the final vote, it failed to get the votes of 14 of the 15 Republicans in the Senate (oddly, Bob Margett supported this tax?), and in its first policy committee vote, every Republican opposed the bill (included OCTA "alumnus" Mike Duvall).

The last thing we need, especially after authorizing BILLIONS IN BORROWING for building roads, is a tax on imports (that is then passed along to we the consumers) for more of the same.

Pat Bates was right to kick this back.
